are you at risk of heart disease?

Here's a study done by the National Council of Psychotherapists.

Which one are you?

— Type A

Impatient, competitive, overachieving workaholics. Can be aggressive and prone to perfectionism. They live by timetables and cannot relax and are insecure. They are at higher risk of heart disease

Example: Edmund Blackadder

— Type B

Patient, easygoing, relaxed and content with their lot. Calm and rational, Type Bs have the best long-term health outlook

Example: Homer Simpson

— Type C

Have difficulty expressing emotion. Eager to please, conforming and introverted. Self-controlled and prone to severe stress as a result. This personality type was first identified among cancer patients

Example: Charles (Hugh Grant) from Four Weddings and a Funeral

— Type D

Consciously suppress their feelings. They tend to be worried, gloomy and anxious, shy and insecure, lacking assertiveness and self-confidence. Type D people are at higher risk of recurrent heart attack

Example: Eeyore

So in conclusion, we should all be like Homer! Now get on out of here, drink and live recklessly!
